Important announcement regarding the Climbing Day Activities:

The Oval is excited to welcome the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival to the Richmond Olympic Oval on March 1st! While staff are doing everything in their power to get the new climbing wall up and ready, unforeseen circumstances have stalled the delivery of materials for the new wall being transported by rail.

Due to these delays out of the Oval’s control, there will not be a climbing component to the March 1st screening held at the Oval.

Sonnie Trotter

Sonnie Trotter has been obsessed with climbing for nearly 25 years. During this time he has amassed an impressive list of first ascents and challenging repeats around the world. But his self proclaimed ‘greatest achievement’ so far has been his 14 year relationship with his now wife Lydia and the birth of their two children Tatum and Mesa. Sonnie shares with us some of his insight into the world of love, risk, parenting and travel.
